Editor’s Note:

Johnny B says “Benelli’s M4 is what we would call a good Italian auto shotgun. It’s the best combat shotgun on the market and would do phenomenal in a home defense setup or tactical arena. This autoloader looks great, runs smooth, brings that cool factor we all like from our guns. Most importantly, you can trust your life to it.” This 12-gauge shotgun is a fast-shooting, smooth semi-auto model. Featuring an 18.5-inch barrel, it measures 40 inches in total length with a weight of 7.8 pounds. It offers up a 14.75-inch length-of-pull. Drilled and tapped, you can throw an optic on it and rock and roll.

By The Numbers - Benelli M4

Rifled slugs at 100-yards? Fuggedaboutit.
For me and multiple thousands of rounds of birdshot, the M4 is perhaps the most reliable gun I’ve ever run.
The aftermarket for the M4 is robust.
The big grip is fantastic, and the controls are solid. The foregrip it comes with is so-so but is an easy replacement for something bigger.

Benelli M3

Benelli M3


“The Benelli M3 is my favorite shotgun of all time. It might be the most capable and versatile shotgun on the market. And it’s one of the rare convertible shotguns. A convertible shotgun is one that allows the user to swap between a semi-automatic action and a pump action. The benefit of the M3’s system is that you can use any shotgun round on the market. The pump-action mode allows it to cycle low recoiling rounds that won’t cycle in a semi-auto action.” — Travis Pike

Mossberg 590A1

Mossberg 590A1


Tracing its roots back to the respected and venerable Mossberg 500, the 590A1 keeps the core of what makes the 500-series of shotguns so great and makes it even better. The U.S. military put out a request for a more durable pump-action shotgun that could stand up to the rigors of hard field use, and the 590A1 was born. Mossberg responded by adding a tough parkerized finish,  all metal trigger guard, thick-walled barrel, and stronger internals. It is an intuitive and easy to use pump-gun, but it is a bit on the heavy side due to the aforementioned features. The extra weight helps tame the harsh recoil of the 12 gauge round, making the shooting experience a little more pleasant. The ambidextrous tang safety makes the gun easy for all users to operate the gun. Its wide aftermarket also allows you to tailor the gun to your specific wants and needs. While the 590A1 isn’t the smoothest or lightest shotgun out there, it is an absolute tank, and you’d be hard pressed to find any firearm that will last as long and take as much punishment.

“Benelli’s M4 stands as a shining example of what a good Italian auto shotgun can do. Far and away, it’s the best combat shotgun on the market. This autoloader looks great, runs smooth, offers up a certain cool factor, and you can trust your life to it. It earns two huge thumbs up from us. Without hesitation, we recommend you run…not walk…and buy an M4.” – Johnny B.
